If you see this soon Newegg has the Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB Bare Drives for $99.99 with free shipping. I'm running 2 of these in raid 1 and they are fast. This price is only for today though and then they go back up.

Ended up changing a few things when I ordered it all from Newegg today...Basically got the same Mobo but with the added USB 3.0, got a different case, little bigger HD with longer warranty, dropped down the Power Supply just a bit...
All in all I can't wait to get a little bit better system than what I had. I think my son is going to inherit the old system now. Now I just have to get myself a new monitor...chin

Lol...looked at the SSD's....too much $ per Gig yet.
As far as ETQW, I can play it now...just never appealed to me when I played the demo for awhile.

Seriously.

Most bang for the buck these days.

Boot times under 30 seconds.
Game load times awesome.

And reboots........ painless.

But I understand about the gig/$ thing.

But keep it in mind.
